Pomegranate Gin Gimlet

This cocktail is tart from the pomegranate and lime juices, sweet from the simple syrup, and a little herbaceous thanks to the gin.

Break out your best coupes or martini glasses for this garnet-hued version of a classic gin gimlet. To add some old-school cocktail bar flair, frost the glasses by rinsing and chilling them in the freezer for about an hour before serving.


  • 1 cup gin (such as Tanqueray)

  • 3/4 cup pomegranate juice

  • 3/4 cup freshly-squeezed lime juice (from about 6 limes)

  • 1/2 cup simple syrup

  • 4 lime wheels, for garnish

  • Garnish: Pomegranate seeds


  1. Add the gin, pomegranate juice, lime juice, and simple syrup to a large pitcher. Add about two cups of ice, and stir with a slotted spoon for about 30 seconds. Using the slotted spoon, remove and discard the ice.

  2. Divide the gin mixture between four coupe or martini glasses. Garnish each glass with a lime wheel and pomegranate seeds and serve immediately.
